Fourth Sunday of Easter

ShareLife 2011
Working wonders for immigrants and refugees... The Shakar family left their home in Iraq in the face of antiChristian sentiment in the area. They fled to Jordan where they struggled to survive – as refugees, the parents couldn’t work and the kids couldn’t go to school. With the help of the Office for Refugees, a ShareLife agency, the family found their way to Canada. Today, the Shakar couple are working and productive and their children enjoy going to school and meeting new friends. In 2009, ShareLife agencies assisted almost 40,000 newly arrived people in the GTA become productive and self-sufficient, through settlement programs. Please give generously. YOU can work WONDERS!
